According to the manufacturer Panicyl Corporation, the product has a rate of success of 87%, however this information is not supported by any actual scientific studies or research. The formula is advertised to work by balancing the levels of two key neurotransmitters: Serotonin and Norepinephrine, which are accountable for mood, behavior and emotional balance.

Panicyl is a mixture of herbal ingredients designed to support mood and provide support against tress induced depression and anxiety. Vinpocetine is a chemical substance obtained from Vincamine, an alkaloid naturally occurring in the seeds of Voacanga as well as in other plants. The compound is used since 1960, especially in Europe where it was prescribed to treat conditions such as age-related memory impairment, cerebrovascular disorders, short-term memory impairment and treat Tinnitus (ringing in the years)..
Vinpocetine is a vasodilator, hence helping increases cerebral blood flow. Its neuroprotective functions are well appreciated and include memory and concentration enhancement, activating cerebral metabolism, increasing awareness and alertness and cognitive performance. Vinpocetine has been reported to cause nausea, sleep disturbances, stomach pain, headache, dizziness and nervousness.
